Aria Primary Students Visit the North

In mid November, 27 senior students and 13 adults spent an action-packed week in Northland, based at Marsden Bay, Whangarei.

Highlights were many and included:
A day at The Octopus Hideaway in Leigh where all students and parents snorkelled in the Goat Island Marine Reserve.
A visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Russell.
A sail on a replica sailing ship, the R Tucker Thompson, with all children climbing the rigging and having a turn at steering.
Other activities were a visit to the Matakohe Kauri Museum, Marsden Bay Oil Refinery, Leigh Reptile Park, Kelly Tarlton’s Marine World and the Auckland Stardome. We mustn’t forget lots of water sliding, kayaking, driving (thank-you awesome parents!) and AMAZING fish and chips!

It was an action packed week enjoyed by all and we thank our annual Two Day Bike Ride fundraiser for funding half of the total cost.
